ANIMALS AND THEIR DOINGS




MOTHER STORIES




 Ding, dong bell,
 Pussy's in the well!
 Who put her in?
 Little Tommy Lin.
 Who pulled her out?
  Little Johnny Stout.
 What a naughty boy was that
 To drown the poor, poor pussy-cat
 Who never did him any harm
But killed the mice in his father's barn.




I like little pussy, her coat is so warm,
And if I don't hurt her she'll do me no
 harm;
So I'll not pull her tail, nor drive her away,
But pussy and I very gently will play.
